How is that being received by your colleagues? I know you're pro education, but how is everyone else dealing with it.
Lol the ER wanted me to intubate my drunk patient the other night that was breathing just fine on his own, with a GCS of 3. I'm like uh nope haha
He was intubated in the ER with a BAC of .573
Uh....so, you didn't tube your pt with a GCS of 3? Why not?
Breathing fine doesn't mean good airway maintenance...in a matter of seconds you can loose it.
Or am I missing something here?
.573 is beyond drunk. I'm not even sure how it's possible to drink that much.
They seem to be taking it very well. I lucked out and got a great group of instructors and some great providers sitting in the class with me.
First topic this morning was fighting the old statement of 'ems doesn't diagnose'. Plus there's a lot of talk about coming away from the technician titles and becoming true clinicians and professionals
It's about 29 degrees where I'm at. We also have snow in the mountains, none on the valley floor. It's just too cold for some here, but I'm ok with it. We're going to have night-time sub-freezing temps for quite a while. At least daytime temps will be somewhat OK.We have snow in the mountains but that is all. Its been freezing cold here, 44ºF (that's too cold for SoCal).
